HYDROS Magnet Mount Temperature Sensor Application Example
You can configure your HYDROS app to set an alert when aquarium water temperatures deviate from your set "safe zone" temperature. For example, receive a mobile alert if the water temperature is higher than 82°F or lower than 78°F. You can also set HYDROS WiFi controllable outlets (i.e., HYDROS 4 Outlet WiFi AC Power Strip or HYDROS WiFi Smart Plug) with a heater, chiller, or fan plugged into them turn on or off when the temperature is outside the safe zone.
AutoAqua General Information
The Magnet Mount Temperature Sensor is an Official HYDROS Accessory manufactured by AutoAqua in Taiwan. As creators of the Smart ATO Micro, AutoAqua is one of the most well-known and trusted makers of aquarium automation systems in the hobby today. CoralVue has thoroughly tested the Magnet Mount Temperature Sensor to ensure seamless compatibility with the HYDROS platform. The product development team at CoralVue engineered the sensor so it connects with any HYDROS Sense Port using its aviation-style plug for safe operation. No additional power source is needed to run the sensor.
Hydros aquarium controllers are the next generation of automated aquarium devices. Rather than relying on each individual device’s brain and programming capacity, the Hydros Control units have their own CPU and control capabilities. Hydros Control devices remove the problem of incompatible ports and need to continually add modules to expand your aquarium’s automation system. This new technology is called the Hydros Sense Port. The Sense Port is an entirely new concept in aquarium monitoring technology. A Sense Port is a generic input port that can accept data from numerous different types of sensors. Drive Ports provide 12-volt power for controlling ATO pumps, cooling fans, and other devices. Hydros is the future of automation!
